Numerical Model of IProTech PIP WEC Device


iProTech PIP wave energy converter (WEC) is a slack moored, single hull device with no moving parts in the water, joints or bearings. This submission includes data of the simulation, reports, and code for the iProTech PIP (WEC) project. The organization of the data included in the provided archive is detailed below and in the data description of the archive.

The data teamer-iprotech-nrel folder includes and explains matlab and python code developed to hydrodynamically model the PIP WEC device in WEC-Sim. The subfolders cover the following steps:
1) report: explanatory information on device geometry
2) pip_mesher: python code to generate mesh panels from device profile data
3) wec-sim_models: matlab code to run WEC-Sim
The data uploaded is a snapshot as of 11/02/2121 of code residing in a Github repository administered by David Ogden of NREL.
